• Microcentrifuge


A high speed, compact microcentrifuge perfect for DNA applications.

The Spectrafuge 16M Microcentrifuge is the perfect high speed compact microcentrifuge. Producing a maximum of 16,000 x g, it is the ideal unit for DNA applications. A brushless, maintenance free motor provides extremely fast acceleration and deceleration of the 18-place rotor and makes the Spectrafuge 16M one of the quietest microcentrifuges in its class.

Centrifuge Control

Speed and time are set with the control knobs on the front panel of the unit. A "Quick" button allows for momentary runs. A continuous flow of ambient air through the rotor chamber keeps the rotor and samples cool. For applications requiring sub-ambient temperatures, the Spectrafuge™ 16M may be operated in a cold room.

The Spectrafuge 16M Microcentrifuge is supplied complete with an 18 place rotor for 1.5/2.0 mL tubes. Smaller tubes are accommodated by adapters (sold separately). The optional Strip-Spin™ rotor adapter holds two 8 x 0.2 mL strips, typically used for PCR.
